Lacy Doily WIP

I had to stretch the rings on the second round so that it would lay flat as it was cupping. It still is, slightly. Finished the third round and 4 more to go. Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in Peach Light Col 630. 

After tatting the cobweb doily, I knew I wanted to do another pattern from the same book.

Choose Me?

We were at our local supermarket
and noticed this.

Was it the flow of the water?

Were they schooling in a confined space?

Or they were just trying to confuse the humans?

Don't choose me!!

Cobweb Doily

I love this. I wonder why it did not catch my eye earlier. Tatted in Venus Size 40 in Col. 486. The pattern is from Tatting Doilies and Edgings edited by Rita Weiss. It measures about 4 inches across and tatted in 4 rounds.

I might tat this again in a different colour.

Flowering Cordyline

While on the bus, I noticed that the Cordyline plants were flowering and I had not seen that before. The flowers looked delicate. I wanted to take photos but it was impossible from a moving bus.

When I reached the bus interchange, there were some plants there, so I whipped out my phone and you get to see it too.

Carnival (MK#71)

This is the pattern on the cover of Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. One motif isn't enough. I think more would be visually more interesting.

This is tatted in Lizbeth size 40 in River Blue Medium Col. 708. It measures about 2.5 inches across.

Patchwork (MK#70)

This is four motifs joined together. Makes a nice square. Measuring 4 inches across in Lizbeth Size 40 thread Seacrest Green Col. 714. I love this shade of green.

Patchwork is a very pretty pattern by Mary Konior in her book Tatting with Visual Patterns.

Flower Patch (MK#69)

I have not tatted a Mary Konior pattern in ages. I was browsing through her book Tatting with Visual Patterns, trying to find a pattern that appealed to me, which I have not tried. I chose this one.

Tatted in Lizbeth Size 20 Harvest Orange Medium Col. 694 and Twirlz Monarch Col. 406.

TF #13

One more small motif from The Tatting Artistry of Teiko Fujita. This has large rings and I found it quite a unique looking pattern. Tatted in Lizbeth Size 20 in Col. 623 Raspberry Pink.

My Fluttering Heart

Another Teri Dusenbury pattern from her Tatting Hearts book. This pattern is labelled for intermediate skill level, mainly because of the split ring outer border with the half daisy. A little fiddly but I think the heart is pretty.

Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in three colours: Lollipop Col. 135, Peach Light Col. 635 and Green Ice Col. 187.

I am becoming a fan of Green Ice, such a lovely soothing colour.
